Northern Spain is the ‘real’ Spain. Here you will find the history of the country. It is the ideal environment for culture and nature lovers.
The north of Spain is still unknown territory for many tourists. It is a very varied region with the Mediterranean Sea in the east and the Atlantic Ocean in the west. In the middle are mountain ranges such as the Pyrenees, the Cantabrian Mountains and a little more to the south the high plateau of La Meseta.
In Northern Spain, nature is beautiful, wild and green. The landscape alternates between the sea and mountains and offers countless possibilities for a holiday. While the south of Spain can welcome most of the tourists, here it is wonderfully quiet and unspoilt. Life is still pure and authentic. And the gastronomy? The kitchen in Northern Spain is known as one of the most innovative kitchen in the world. It is not without reason that there are so many Michelin restaurants in San Sebastian, for example.
Camino de Santiago
In Northern Spain you will also find several pilgrimage routes. The camino Frances, the camino del Norte and the camino Primitivo for example. Thousands of pilgrims walk or bike these pilgrim roads every year. On the way to Santiago de Compostela. The ultimate goal of the Camino de Santiago.
Something for everyone
The northern coastal region is named ‘Costa Verde’ and consists of the regions of Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and Basque Country. They are separated from the high plains of Castilla y León by the Cantabrian Mountains. This impressive mountain range with ‘Picos de Europa‘ ensures that the rain often lingers on the north side.
